I've managed to get to final pocket of this complex a few times. Well, at least I think the pocket behind Celestis is final, right? But every time I've got there, I've found only bunch od frigates and some turrets. No overseer boss nor structure.

So, my newbie question is: A) Is it supposed to be like that? B) Or just someone killed overseer (whatever it is) before me and it just didn't respawn.

If B is right, how often does it respawn and what should I expect?

Sounds like someone got there before you.

I would say respawn time on a 3/10 is approx 4hrs - anyone?

Final stage is a
Supplystation Overseer - almost never anything with him
Sypplystation - 12hrs Respawn - 9th Tier Overseers effects + sometimes very good loot
(e. g. Gistii Small Shield Booster ~140mil)

Its very hard to get the Supplystation intact cause usually
these complexes are camped right after DT (and + 12hrs) by
competent people (e. g. HAC pilots) who are often faster than yourself....

HAC you say? Isn't that little bit overkill? ;)

I guess rifter doesn't make competition. Thanks for reply anyway.

Of course its overkill, but some people prefer grind over
fun and their only goal is to get as fast as possible to the
final stage and get the big loot. Once you have done it couple of
times it gets boring anyway and the only reason to do it IS the
loot in the final stage and so you minimize the boring time factor
by using the fastest way possible....

The respawn is every 8 hours, and they are pretty vigorously farmed. You should be able to run it in a Rifter, it'll just take a while and you'll need to use artillery and stay out of the swarm of frigates.

I've once had the Refinery Overseer drop a couple of Shadow Serpentis items, but yes the real value is in the Gistii booster. If you think it's worth 140m I have a couple I want to sell you ...

Poster #6 is correct.

And yes, HACs in 3/10 complexes is hilarious.
Quite some people have alts stationed at those systems just to farm them at respawn time.

Randomizing final overseer respawn times (from 6-9 hrs) and not resetting them after downtime would be a big step in the right direction imho.
